Quotes

Lieutenant Underpants: [interrogating the squad] Which one of you is spreading rumors about me and hinting that I be reassigned?
Sgt. "Scream" Silas: [appears behind the Lieutenant] I am, sir. So if you want to scream at anyone, you yell at me. But I scream back, sir. That's why they call me "Scream".

Potential
2 August 2005 | by cl_saladSee all my reviews

To quote the critically acclaimed Vietnam vetern turned author Tim O'Brien, "A true story that never happened." Or at least that's what Over There looks to be attempting to be. Sure it won't be 100% factually or technically accurate (c'mon like a test season of a TV show can afford to get a UH Blackhawk rather than a UH-1 Huey etc etc) The pilot episode is enough to catch interest. While the dialogue treads familiar "war movie cliché" group, the visual presentation is excellent. The show does an excellent job in depicting the dirt, grundge, heat, and freezing nights of the desert. The most effective scenes are the ones with the barest dialogue and everything is shown.

Whatever your feelings on the war, the show is worth checking out if only for the fact has rengaged the public to think about the war again (which seems to have been relagated to the back of the collective consciousness). Hopefully it'll live up to the hype. Hopefully it will become the TV analog to the documentary Gunner Palace.
